    I have read the other comments and I would like to point out that while for many of you we are "less fortunate," this view is inaccurate. We are people who function in society in the same roles that you do, but we need accommodations in order to do this. Calling us "less fortunate" perpetuates the attitudes that cause the problems in the first place. Valuing us as fully contributing members of society will go further toward shedding light on the reasons why these accommodations are the right thing to do. I am a Hebrew professor. Is it the right thing for me, and for my students, for me to have full access to resources and to be able to work efficiently? Or is it right because I am a poor pathetic blind person who cannot see? Think about the difference in theology.
